RFID Journal Live! 2015 Show Recap

Arcadian Launches RFMAX Brand at RFID Live! 2015


It's been several weeks now since the RFID Journal Live! Tradeshow in San Diego, and now that we've managed to catch our breath (at least a little), we can offer a few reflections on 2015's premeire RFID event.

 

To begin with, show attendance was at it's highest level since 2008, and the increase in traffic from the past few years was noticeable. A good sign that business is continuing to recover, and that the RFID space continues to grow. While many attendees were RFID industry insiders and familiar faces, a significant proportion were also end users from virtually every industry imaginable. More good news for the RFID space as a whole, and for growing RFID adoption in general.

 

As for Arcadian, we utilized this years show to launch our new brand of RFID products from RFMAX. Key products shown included RFMAX Passive RFID Antennas and Antenna Cables; RFID Weatherproof Reader Enclosures, and the RFMAX Power Mapper.Traffic to the booth was steady for all 3 days of the event, with plenty of people taking notice of the new RFMAX product line. Interest in antennas and weatherproof enclosures was fantastic, but the RFMAX Power Mapper literally stole the show... in fact, we sold out our entire stock of Power Mappers while we were there! (not to worry if you didn't get yours yet... we've since replenished our stock and have more on the way).

 

Overall, we see interest in RFID applications and products continuing to bloom, and  are thrilled with the response we received for our new RFMAX line. A great show this year all the way around. Our sincere thanks to all of our customers, partners and friends, along with the RFID Journal staff for making this year's RFID Journal Live show one for the books!

We just received results from independent testing of the RFMAX Power Mapper, and the results confirmed exactly what we've been hearing from our customers: The RFMAX RFID Power Mapper does what it says it will, and is an indispensible tool for setting up and troubleshooting any RFID installation. 

 

According to the report: "This instrument should be a standard part of any RFID installer’s tool box".

This question has come up several times, and I would like to address it in detail.  See my notes below on each of the EZ mounts and what their maximum weight loads are.  Keep in mind that there are TWO ratings for each mount.

EZ-M6-COMBO - ARCADIAN INC.

A “static” rating, for antennas that will be mounted in a secure location and not be subjected to any vibration at all.

A “subject to vibration” rating, for antennas that will be mounted in a location that is subject to ANY shake or vibration.  That could be the obvious, like on a vehicle, or the less obvious, like next to a stamping machine, or next to a loading dock.

Here is my input:

 

We are no longer recommending the EZP4 in 2015.  With the popularity of the EZM6 (6 inch die cast aluminum RFID antenna mounting bracket) most customers are leaning towards spending a few extra dollars for this model, and we are spending more and more of our inventory dollars on stocking the EZM6 (wall, mast & combo)

Notes:

EZM6: 5 lbs. (static install) or 2 lbs. (if subject to vibration)  Suitable for:

·        Laird 10x10” models (S9028PC, PAL902909, PAR90209)

·        MTI 12x12” models (MT-262006)

·        Times-7 smaller models (A6031, A6032)

 

EZM9: 10 lbs. (static install) or 5 lbs. (if subject to vibration)  Suitable for:

·        Laird 10x10” models (S9028PC, PAL902909, PAR90209)

·        Laird 10x20” model (PRL90209)

·        MTI 12x12” models (MT-262006)

·        Times-7 smaller models (A6031, A6032)

·        Times-7 larger models (A6034 & A6034S) *with or without the sheet metal mounting plate* 

 

If you are using the EZ mounts in conjuction with Times 7 antenna #'s, A6031, A6032, A6034 or A6034S, you will also require a Times 7 mounting plates.

I wanted to take a moment to inform our RFID clients about a GREAT tool that many RFID professionals feel is an essential part of their "toolkit" in the field:

The RFID Power Mapper from RFMAX is a small (2 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches) hand-held unit that measures relative antennastregth for both linear and circular RFID antennas in the FCC: 902-928 mhz & ETSI: 865-868 mhz ranges.

The unit does NOT require batteries, so it's always ready when you need it.  It simply uses radiated RF power like an RFID tag, and displays signal strength on a simple to read analog guage.  I find it most helpful when comparing one antenna vs. another's gain and beam width in a particular installation, or simpy to test whether we are getting signal from a particular antenna node.

This simple tool can save the professional RFID system integrator a tremendous about of time on the job.  Click the photo below for our product page which will give you a complete overview of the device, and the option to order from our STOCK.

S9028 PCL/PCR
